    I'd get in on this if I was allowed, I'm a fast runner and know I can beat your 800m time. Once I start running again I'll enter this, maybe that will coincide when I become an orange belt?

    I may be a white belt but I find your times pretty irregular. Thats a really fast 400m in comparison to your 800m. At least when I compare to my high school times.

    400m 57
    800m 2:10

    Then in college
    Never did one mile but did a two miler in 10:07

    what do you run the 100m in? Your 400 is beastly. You'd definitely win a bunch of college track meets.

    mm, I'm a good sprinter but I fade off the longer the distance. I always come either first or second in 200m or 400m. Theres one kid in my city I'm friends with, but he can sometimes beat me :( We are kinda like rivals, and we are like half the track inhead of people.

    To the OP, I either call work or you never ran the 800 or mile.

    Someone who runs a 400 in 49 seconds will not say they ran 49, they will just come out an say something like 49.34 because they ran it in a meet with accutrack timing.

    Also, if you were in shape to run a 49 second 400, you could have jogged an 800at least around 2:05 at the slowest. A comparable 800 time to a 49 second 400 is about 1:48 - 1:54 depending on how many miles you run per week.

    Have you ever thought that maybe he set his 400m personal best at a time where he was in much better shape than at the time when he set his 800m record?

    I don't know about my 800 time.

    I'm doing some 800m intervals and know the 4th and last one was 3 min 5s, but I was pretty fucked at that point.

    I did a 1.5 in 8 min 49 in feb, so thats 5 min 55 a mile

    Well I was shocked when I finished and was told my time

    I had gone from not training for months to early morning fasted sessions, 3 runs and a few swims and rows a week for 4 weeks before the test. The runs were untimed so when I was told I was below a 6 min mile I was chuffed.

    Now when I'm back into the swing of things again I'm going to start timing my 1.5 and see how I do

    I was a pretty good 800m runner back in high school. I ran 2 flat in practice, but in comp could never break 2:04.
